As the year comes to a close, we’d like to thank all our amazing panda fans and take a look at what made 2013 such an amazing year!

We’ve grown from almost 90,000 fans on Facebook to more than 360,000. We’ve also been able to take on a few more writers to ensure that our panda fans get their paws on only the freshest and coolest news. With 12 million unique page views a month, Bored Panda has become a force to be reckoned with in the fight against boredom.

While we may be bored pandas, we certainly aren’t lazy. This year, we rolled out our brand-new user submission system, With it, artists and writers have had the opportunity to share their work with other bored pandas around the world. The most notable among them was undoubtedly Queenie Liao, whose cute baby photographs received a record-breaking 1.6 million likes.

We’ve also spent the last three months working on a spiffy new re-design that will make our site even cooler and easier to use.

We hope that 2013 was as amazing for you guys as it was for us. We love reading about amazing new art and seeing the wonders of the world just as much as you do, so we invite you to join us in 2014 and see what else is out there!
